Date cancelled: June 2019
The upcoming third season of the Danish post-apocalyptic series will be its last. Netflix didn’t release any specific reason behind the show’s cancellation, but it’s possible that the series has already reached its natural conclusion.
Created by Jannik Tai Mosholt, Esben Toft Jacobsen, and Christian Potalivo, The Rain follows siblings Simone (Alba August) and Rasmus (Lucas Lynggaard Tønnesen) who emerge from a bunker six years after a virus carried by rainfall wiped out almost all humans in Scandinavia. While looking for their scientist father, the siblings join a group of young survivors and travel across Denmark and Sweden. Season 3 is scheduled to be released on August 6th, 2020.
